Synopsis… “When Ollie spots an alien on a nearby rooftop he knows right away that no one is going to believe him. Sure enough, his friends think he is losing it, and even his bandmate, Zara, is convinced he is seeing things. But she still offers to help him track down his cat, who has mysteriously vanished. Together, they follow a trail of clues that leads them inexorably upwards, towards the strange creature lurking on a rooftop overhead.”
Overall rating 5 out of 5 stars.
This book was just what I needed! It was excellent and if I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would.
In the current pandemic life has been short of laughs, light hearted humour and general happiness and enjoyment from things so when I downloaded Intergalactic Interloper I was hooked from the first chapter.
I loved how this book had each chapter from a different perspective, it helped to move the story along and gave us the chance to see the backdrop of New York from so many different perspectives.
I was initially confused as the title implies the story will focus solely on our Alien visitors, but once I got deeper into the book I realised that wasn’t the case. That each individual person or being that we were focusing on at any one time were there for the value of a persons POV, the true lead of the story was New York City and the many ways relationships are formed.
Once I realised this I absolutely LOVED reading everyone’s connections and interactions with the aliens on the roof, it was brilliant to see so many different reactions through different eyes.
We also were treated to these truly beautiful graphics at the start of each chapter, which I thought added the perfect finishing touch.
I do think my favourite part was the ending, not because it meant the book was finished I wished it was longer in fact, but because of the way AxzleProva dealt with Mrs Butler, and the way that they were debating between themselves how to deal with her. It just rounded off the book perfectly.
On the whole, I absolutely adored Intergalactic Interloper, it was a light hearted, cheeky and funny read that brought a lot of joy and happiness to my bookshelf!
